Hello there, my name is Brax!

I was surrendered to Lort Smith when I had an unfortunate accident that left me with a broken jaw and pelvis. I have been receiving vet treatment and recovering in a foster home for the past few months. I was quite a sick little man! Thankfully I've recovered incredibly well and I have now been given the all clear to find my forever family!

My ideal home would be one without other animals, I'm not really a fan of sharing my space. I'm also FIV (Feline Immunodeficiency Virus) positive. I will need to be a strictly indoor only cat. Perhaps if I'm lucky I can have access to a cat enclosure to safely bask in the sunshine and enjoy the fresh air.

Despite the severity of my injuries, I have made a full recovery and the vets do not believe I will have any further complications down the track.

I'm very affectionate, I love getting cuddles and pats. I will purr away happily. I'm also pretty talkative and have an adorable squeaky meow.

Please come in to the Adoption Hub to meet me, I'll be hanging out here until the perfect forever family snap me up!

ADOPTING AN ANIMAL

Things to consider before adopting an animal

Adopting an animal is a rewarding experience that will last a lifetime.  But before you adopt a pet please take some time to consider the commitment you are about to make. Sometimes the excitement of pet ownership can overshadow factors that should be considered before adoption. 

Adopting a shelter pet is a lifelong decision that will have a major impact to your normal, everyday life.  Please remember that a cat or dog can live for up to 20 years and they will rely only on you for their wellbeing for their entire life. 

Before you decide, have you considered the following?

  • Do I have time to exercise the dog every day?
  • Do I have time for puppy pre-school and time to socialise a puppy?
  • Do I have at least an hour every day to spend with my cat?
  • Do I have time for obedience training?
  • If renting, does the landlord permit pets?
  • Is the backyard big enough and is the fencing secure?
  • Does the whole family want a pet?
  • Will the pet be allowed inside?
  • Will I have to move interstate or overseas in the foreseeable future?
  • Will I have to move to another rental property where the landlord may not allow pets.

Can I afford a pet? 

Pets are a lifelong monetary commitment, you will need to factor in:

  • Weekly animal food bills and necessities
  • Yearly council registration
  • Monthly medications like heart worm/intestinal worm and flea treatments
  • Annual vet visits for vaccinations and check ups
  • Unexpected vet bills due to accidents or medical conditions
  • Ongoing grooming
  • Boarding fees for human holidays
  • Enrichment like training, toys etc
